4 Days in Colombia

We took 1 day of PTO on Memorial Day Weekend for a quick trip to Bogota and Zipaquira Colombia. Highlights included food, coca, and the graffiti tour.

Trip time: 4 days: 1 PTO day + 1 vacation day (MLK) + 2 weekend days – 7 hours each direction.

Major attractions visited:

  • Paloquemao Market
  • Plaza Bolivar
  • Museo Del Oro (Gold Museum)
  • Zipaquira Salt Cathedral
  • Bogota Graffiti Tour
  • Monserrate
  • Iglesia Nuestra Senora del Carmen (Church)
